Call-Out for Student Participants in "Dwellings"

 

PERC 490: Dwellings

An immersive theatrical exploration of the loss, meaning and potential of home for Indigenous and other peoples, meant to aid mutual understanding and reconciliation. Audiences will make small migrations from one performance space to another, each focusing on a different topic, from the sacred to the abject such as memory of trauma, gathering, the power of nature, housing, or recovery. The experience culminates in a gathering to share words, perspectives and food.

Call-Out for Student Participants

We are looking for undergrad and graduate students to help realize Dwellings, an immersive, multimedia performance project, which will look at the notion of home and housing in Indigenous communities. The project will be taking place in a number of Research and Departmental spaces across Concordia, lead by guest artists Floyd Favel (Cree) and Emilie Monnet (Anishinaabe/French) and theatre faculty Ulla Neuerburg-Denzer.

The spaces include: The SenseLab, the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, and the Matralab, among others.

The project can be taken for credit as a 3- or 6-credit course under code PERC 490 and PERC 498, and will be created from January until April, with performances happening April 20-23. Students interested in performing must be available for all four performance nights. For meeting times, look at the course calendar. Some time conflicts can be accommodated.

We're looking for students to participate in the realization of the practical/ technical/ theoretical and performative aspects of the project.

Students from all areas of the University are welcome. Students with backgrounds in indigenous studies, media and technology, performance, oral history, film, music and community work are strongly encouraged to apply.
